Teacher Is Suspended For Making Students Write A Suicide Note For Homework
World

A French middle school teacher has been suspended after assigning her class of teenagers to write a suicide note for homework.

The man, who has not been named, is a teacher at the Antoine-Delafont school in Montmoreau-Saint-Cybard, near Angouleme, France.

He told the 13 and 14-year-olds to write a suicide note for homework, asking them to imagine what they would say to themselves if they were about to end their own lives.

“You’ve just turned 18. You’ve decided to end your life. Your decision is definitive,” read the assignment.

“In a final surge you decide to put in words the reason behind your decision. In the style of a self-portrait, you describe the disgust you have for yourself. Your text will retrace certain events in your life at the origin of these feelings.”

Jean-Marie Renault, the school head, confirmed that the teacher has been “officially notified” of his suspension, following complaints from parents.

“It was suggested that a student was on the point of putting an end to his life and describing it,” said Mr. Renault. “This appears quite disturbing.”

Renault said that the teacher confessed to feeling “confused” while giving the assignment, and that he later regretted it.

The teacher is popular with students and faculty, and it sounds as if this may have been his way to cry out for help.
